Mottainai is a Japanese term for reduce, reuse, recycle. Also conveying a sense of regret concerning waste when the intrinsic value of an object or resource is not properly appreciated and/or utilized. Mottainai is widely used in everyday life to indicate the waste of any material object, time, energy or other resource.

It is the way of KAMUNAGARA that acknowledges the meaning of universal existence and value...it utilizes everything without waste, studies the meaning behind everything and the will of the Kami....learning the functions and values that prosper naturally in peace and harmony....in Oharahi-no-kotoba it relates to the line: ONOGA HAHA OKASERU TSUMI referring to the actions against Kamunagara.
